General Mach Discussion / SheetCAM Gcode will not run in Mach3
« on: January 30, 2008, 03:21:48 PM »
Hi Guys,

I recently started using SheetCAM, and I have generated some G code using it. However, for reasons that I can't seem to figure out, it will not run on my machine under Mach3 Mill, while G code generated with Lazy Cam runs just fine. I selected the Mach2 post processer in SheetCAM because there is no available option for Mach3. I suppose that the problem lies in the post processor, but I am not familiar enough with G Code to see what it is. I have attached one of each of the files. the inner plate file was made by Lazy Cam and it works; the anti-rotation collar was made with SheetCAM and it does not work. I would really appreciate it if any experts out there could tell me what it wrong.


I am just learning this system so bear with me. My Mach3 mill v2.58 does not pause,  home or otherwise notice that there is an M6 in the code. I read the manual and it says to make sure that tool change is enabled in config>logic. Problem is, there is no config>logic on my pull down. Can some explain to me what I am doing wrong and what I need to do to get the machine to pause for a tool change, and then return and continue. Also, any guidance on how to insure the Z axis is calibrated after a tool change would be appreciated.
